TEMPLE (+7) at Penn State: I took a stand against PSU last week verse Navy and got crushed. At first I thought I would avoid this game, but after analyzing the game and the teams I decided to take a second stand against PSU. PSU has probably played about as well as anyone could have expected. Temple on the other hand has clearly under performed. PSU finally got their first win last week and therefore it is a potential let down spot, yes again, for them. Temple should be more than ready and focused for this in-state rivarly. So really what this comes down to for me is which team is more likely to play their best game and for me that is Temple. Stats for both teams in pretty much all offensive and defensive categories fall below average, but I think Temple can improve and should do so on Saturday. PLAY ON TEMPLE for 1 UNIT.

ARMY/WAKE FOREST OVER 55: The key to this game is obviously the offenses. The two defenses have combined to give up over a 150 points in just 5 games total. Army is terrible against the pass and should not be able to stay with the speed of WF. On the other side, WF is terrible against the┬árun and we know Army is going to run the ball over 90% of the time. I think both teams have the ability to score in the low 30s, and it is possible if WF’s passing game gets going early they could score have a hundred themselves. BET 1 UNIT ON THE OVER 55.

    I like Temple (+7) as well. Temple always plays Penn State tough. Temple nearly won last year. Penn State won 14-10 in 2011 and 22-13 in 2010. Temple got their ass kicked by Maryland though and that’s a concern for me. 4/15 on 3rd down and 1.3 YPC in that game.

    In the big game tonight, I was a little shocked that Clemson is getting 15.5. I was expecting FSU to be favored by 9. Probably not a good game to bet on, but there could be value there. FSU hasn’t played anyone yet! Are they as good as advertised?

    There is cearly no value in laying 15.5 with FSU. While FSU may have a great chance to win a national title this year, but at this point in the season they have proved very little. Clemson has talent, are very quick, and are well coached. I think FSU wins fairly easily, but I do think Vegas got this line right.
